Azerbaijan’s Defence Minister Col-Gen Zakir Hasanov and Deputy Minister, Air Forces Commander Lt-Gen Ramiz Tahirov are visiting Turkey, the ministry reported on September 14.

The senior defence officials visit Turkey at National Defence Minister Hulusi Akar's invitation, the report added.

As part of the visit, Hasanov and Tahirov are to meet the Turkish top brass and attend the Distinguished Visitors Day of the TurAz Falcon – 2021 joint flight-tactical exercises held in Konya.

On September 12, Azerbaijani Army General Staff Chief Lt-Gen Karim Valiyev met Turkish National Defence Minister Hulusi Akar and his Turkish counterpart Yashar Guler as part of his official visit to Turkey.

The parties discussed the development of cooperation in military, military-technical, military-educational, engineering and other fields.

It should be noted Azerbaijan and Turkey actively collaborate in various military spheres. Often the air, sea and naval forces of the two countries conduct joint tactical drills.

Azerbaijan’s military pilots are attending the TurAz Falcon – 2021 joint flight and tactical drills that have been underway in Konya since September 2.

The joint exercises, which will last until September 17, aim to improve the interaction between the two countries' army units during combat operations, to develop the commanders' military decision-making and unit management skills.

On September 6, the two countries held joint tactical drills in Azerbaijan’s liberated Lachin region under the bilateral military cooperation accord. During the drills, special attention has been paid to improving servicemen's skills to use modern combat and other military equipment in difficult terrain.

Moreover, the Azerbaijani and Turkish underwater offence and defence groups conducted the next stage of their joint military exercises in early September. As a part of the task at the drills, the underwater groups successfully rescued the ship captured by hypothetical enemies in the Azerbaijani sector of the Caspian Sea.

Furthermore, Baku is hosting the Three Brothers – 2021 joint international drills of the Azerbaijani, Turkish and Pakistani special forces that started on September 12 and will last until September 20.

The drills aim to improve the coordination among the special forces units of friendly and partner countries during combat operations, prepare for operations in peacetime and wartime, exchange knowledge and experience.

During the 44-day war with Armenia in 2020, Turkey was among the first countries voicing political support for Azerbaijan. Turkey also backs Azerbaijan in the restoration of the country's liberated territories.

Military cooperation between Azerbaijan and Turkey first emerged in 1992, with an agreement signed between the Azerbaijani and Turkish governments on military education and weapon equipment and deals to help strengthen the bond between the two nations.

On June 15, 2021, the two countries signed a memorandum of alliance that cemented the existing military, political and economic cooperation.

The Shusha Declaration on Allied Relations that President Ilham Aliyev and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed during the first official visit to Shusha eight months after Azerbaijan’s victory in the war with Armenia, also focuses on defence cooperation.

It affirms joint efforts by the two armies in the face of foreign threats. The declaration also pledges joint efforts for the restructuring and modernization of the armed forces. Moreover, the two nations affirm to encourage the execution of joint projects with the aim of developing capabilities in the field of sea, air, and space.

Azerbaijan is conducting negotiations on visit of UNESCO Mission to its territories liberated from Armenian occupation [in the 2020 Second Karabakh War], Minister of Culture Anar Karimov told journalists on Sept.25, Trend reports.

According to Karimov, UNESCO has been informed about the conditions of Azerbaijan and the technical details of the organization of the mission.

"Azerbaijan expects from UNESCO a fair and impartial position, the implementation of the mission in accordance with the mandate without politicizing this issue," he said. "Azerbaijan is interested in the implementation of this mission and expects the investigation of the facts of the destruction of cultural and historical monuments in Karabakh [by Armenia], as well as appropriate assessment of the facts by the international community."

Therefore, Azerbaijan has always been a supporter of this mission and expects UNESCO to treat this issue with the same scrupulousness, added the minister.

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation from late Sept. to early Nov. 2020, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by the Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM, and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Karabakh conflict were introduced on Nov. 10, 2020.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, the Armenian Armed Forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.

International organizations should thoroughly investigate the environmental terror committed by Armenia in previously occupied territories of Azerbaijan, the country’s MP Iltizam Yusifov told Trend on Sept.25.

According to Yusifov, the speech of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev at the annual general debate of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly at the level of heads of states and governments has political and historical significance.

He stressed that during the debates, the president touched upon the topic of the 44-day second Karabakh war [from late Sept. to early Nov.2020] and the upcoming tasks.

"The speech of the head of state testifies that Azerbaijan is on the path of justice, and nothing will force our country to turn away from it," the MP noted.

Having occupied Azerbaijani territories, Armenia inflicted economic and environmental damage there, he added.

"A preliminary assessment was carried out and international organizations were informed. The glorious Azerbaijani army defeated the Armenian armed forces in 44 days and liberated our lands from the occupation, but Armenia left behind destruction and an ecological catastrophe," Yusifov further said.

He also emphasized that Armenia was engaged in illegal activities, robbery of natural resources, pollution of water resources, destruction of flora and fauna in the territories uncontrolled not only by Azerbaijan, but also by the international community.

“During the occupation, Armenia blocked the Tartarchay river, and in several regions hundreds of thousands of hectares of land were left without water, that is, ecological terror was committed, "Yusifov said.

Besides, according to him, during the occupation, Armenian vandals caused great damage to the Basitchay reserve.

"They destroyed almost half of the forests on the territory of the reserve. As a result of Armenian barbarism, the ecosystem that has been forming here for centuries has been irreparably damaged," concluded the MP.

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation from late Sept. to early Nov. 2020, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by the Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM, and the president of Russia.
